We put our teeth through a lot of wear and tear on a daily basis. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that sometimes teeth get chipped, cracked, or broken. Likewise, teeth can be lost to any number of causes.
The good news is that having teeth that are damaged or missing does not have to mean losing your smile. Through restorative dentistry, you can rebuild or replace your teeth to have complete, healthy, and natural-looking smile once again.
At Advanced Dental Center, you can rebuild your oral health through our restorative dentistry, which includes dental crowns and bridges. Your first step is calling 843-627-4076 to make an appointment at our Florence, SC dental office.
Fix Your Smile Fast
For damaged teeth, you can repair your smile in one day with our CEREC dental crowns.
Crowns can do a lot to restore the appearance and the function of your teeth. Crowns can repair teeth with large cavities or teeth that have been filled multiple times. You can get a crown to fix teeth that are broken and teeth that are worn down. You also can get crowns for cosmetic reasons. This includes discolored, misshapen, or short teeth.
With CEREC technology, the process for getting crowns is fast and effective. You won’t need to bite down on an impression tray because we can take a digital scan of your teeth instead. That scan is loaded into a computer, where it’s used to help design your new crown.
That design is the guide for our automated in-office milling machine to shape a ceramic cube into your replacement tooth. This crown can be shaded to match the rest of your smile, so it looks natural when it is bonded in place.
Again, all of this can be done in a matter of a few hours at our office.
Fill The Gap In Your Smile
If you are missing one or more teeth, we also offer the best treatments available in modern dental care for this problem. Depending on the number of teeth you need to replace, you can get an implant-supported crown or implant-supported bridge.
Tooth loss poses a risk of bone loss in your jaw as well, which can cause other problems as you get older. By replacing your missing tooth or teeth with an implant, you can prevent that bone loss from happening.
In those situations, we can use three-dimensional imaging to assess the condition of your remaining teeth and jaw. This helps us plan your implant placement so it provides the maximum benefit for you. After all, we want you to keep your new smile for life.
With your implant in place, we can attach a crown to close the gap and allow you to eat naturally once again.
If you are missing multiple teeth, we can place a few implants to support a dental bridge. This kind of bridge is built by fusing crowns together. That means you know it will be durable and look natural when placed in your mouth.
Complete Your Smile
Damaged and missing teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. They also can make it more difficult to bite and chew. Take care of those issues by getting a dental crown or bridge at Advanced Dental Center.
